LibreOffice Portable
LibreOffice Portable is a powerful alternative to Microsoft Office

If LibreOffice appears at all familiar, it should come as no surprise that the suite has roots in OpenOffice. In fact it is a community lead branch of the same office suite that has been developed by The Document Foundation. You may well wonder why there is a need for different branches of the same office suite - the main reason is that it enables broader changes and additions to be made to the suite

As things stand at the moment, LibreOffice Productivity Suite is not very different to OpenOffice. The main focus of the early releases of the suite are tidying up and optimising existing code before switching to adding new features and options.

Existing users of OpenOffice will feel immediately at home, as all of the familiar components of the suite can be found here in LibreOffice. The suite comprises a word processor, spreadsheet, drawing tool, database and numerous other components. Files can be saved in the suite's own native format, or in formats that are compatible with the likes of Microsoft Office.

As an Office suite is almost essential for most computer users, coupled with the fact that commercial suites tend to be somewhat expensive, there is nothing to be lost in trying out a free alternative. LibreOffice, just like its stable mate OpenOffice, is a very competent tool which could easily cater for your home office or business needs.

Note this is the portable version of LibreOffice Productivity Suite and is Windows-only.

Verdict:

LibreOffice proves that the fact that software is free does not mean that it is poor quality - this is a recommended alternative to Microsoft Office.

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
